Eric Braeden Speaks on Don Diamont Firing

at . Comments

Fans of The Young and the Restless aren't the only ones displeased about the firing of Don Diamont.

Longtime co-star Eric Braeden in on record as being dismayed by the move, as well.

"I was very sad about that, to be quite frank with you. He did some of his best work in the last months, where he played the ‘shifty’ guy and the bad guy and you don’t know quite what he is up to. I think he played that extremely well," Braeden said, adding:

"I always think that’s a mistake to let people go that have been part of the fabric as long as he has been. Furthermore, he was related to people on the show, and personally, I think those things are a mistake. If you want to want to save money, then cut down on hiring new actors."
